A study conducted by the Dhaka Ahsania Mission recommends amending the Tobacco Control Act to ban the production, import-export, promotion, marketing and consumption of all emerging tobacco products, including e-cigarettes.
Many young people use e-cigarettes for style and the flavours. Many consider e-cigarettes help them quit smoking conventional cigarettes. Some perceive e-cigarettes to be less harmful to health compared to conventional cigarettes.
These issues have come up in the results of the study on the use of e-cigarettes conducted on students of two universities in Dhaka.
